Breakfast means quite literally, breaking the fast. When we wake up in the morning, our bodies are starving for nutrition after the night-long deprivation. Depriving your body of its morning dose of nutrition is one of the worst things you could do to your body. A person who does not eat a regular healthy breakfast is likely to spend the morning struggling with sluggishness, diminished ability to concentrate, irritability and, as the day progresses, bouts of hunger that are fended off by quick, calorie-rich foods. Skipping breakfast sets the ball rolling for an unhealthy lifestyle, where the meals keep getting heavier to cope with the body’s starvation in the morning, and the stage is set for weight problems, see-sawing blood sugar levels and heart disease.
